Celebrity Couples I Must Befriend At Once

By Courtney Enlow | Celebrities Are Better than You | September 23, 2013 | Comments ()


Some celebrity couples are fascinating. Some are adorable. Some are hot. Some are What Are You Doing, Mila Kunis? But there is a certain type of couple that you want to actually hang out with. These are the couples I just want to enjoy a bottle of peen greezhe and a game night with.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    Mr. and Mrs Pac Man. Funny thing, he took her name when they married.

  • Jezzer

    When people say "You're dating a fetus," they're usually snarking about the age difference. When people say it to Amy Poehler, it means they just got their first look at Nick Kroll.

  • Bodhi

    Paul & June's awkward intros on WDTGM are some of my favorite things ever.

    I'd love be go to a party thrown by Amy & Nick. They are hilarious & awesome, but holy shit, the guest list would be amazing

  • apsutter

    Are those Kaitlin and Rob's kids? I always forget that they're married and seeing them with babies is blowing my mind.

  • apsutter

    I just became aware that Paul and June Diane were married this weekend and I listen to How Did This Get Made all the time. So bizarre

  • Ben

    Holy shit I had no idea Shaun and Juliette were together in real life and that makes me unreasonably happy.

    I'm always a little upset when fictional couples I get so invested in aren't together in real life. Chris Pratt without Aubre Plaza and Amy Poheler without Adam Scott just... upset me more then it should.

  • John G.

    Amy Poehler and Nick Kroll?

    Is that still going on? Amy, you can do so much better.

  • blacksred

    What about charlie and the waitress???

  • emmalita

    I love that they are married in real life and she despises him so hard on screen.

  • stella

    Damnit Mark Duplass is taken AND shes cool?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz? They seem completely insane, I'd love to go to their parties.

  • Blake

    I guess it's true... Birds of a feather do really flock together....

    So much pasty whiteness.

  • e jerry powell

    I suppose we could have put De Niro up there somewhere. We know he loves da sistahs.

  • Blake

    I'd add:
    Gina Torres & Laurence Fishburne
    Ken Marino & Erica Oyama
    Aisha Tyler & Jeff Tietjens
    Andre Braugher &Ami Brabson

  • emmalita

    Lawrence Fishburn and Gina Torres make me feel so inadequate. I would like to observe them from a distance (respectfully, not stalkery).

  • e jerry powell

    Aisha Tyler and anybody, really.

  • emmalita

    Nick and Megan have been on my freebies list as couple for the past 4 years. I think we all know why.

  • BuffyloGal

    I was rather upset that Duplass was already taken, until I learned by whom. Then it was okay. Ditto for DeeDee and Mac.

  • AvaLehra

    Bobby Cannavale is probably a lovely person, and I know what happens on the magical moving picture box isn't real but whenever I see Bobby Cannavale...all I can think is "funky spunk".

  • Mrs. Julien

    I thought that and couldn't stand him until I saw The Station Agent, then all was forgiven.

  • AvaLehra


  • e jerry powell

    We should ask Robin Williams about that.

  • bastich

    Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs seem like a fun couple....of course, this could just be the lust talking....

  • mrsdalgliesh

    Joshua Jackson and Diane Kreuger. In Paris, with Diane leading the way.

  • clatie

    david burtka is a deadbeat dad to another set of twins.

  • Jifaner

    Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale are a beautiful pair. Oh my.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes, because they are outright weirdos and I love it.

  • e jerry powell


    It should be Hugh Dancy and ME. I won't wear boring Armani Privé, and I'm generally much more entertaining.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    But do you deserve the Dancy? Would you let him wear all the flower crowns and bear his child?

  • Hollyg

    I was going to say. They do crafts together and throw costume parties because "in NY everyone party hops but if they're in costume they have to stay at your party" - I paraphrase but that's the gist and I LOVE IT

  • BWeaves

    I have no idea who most of these people are.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    Ditto. Why would anyone down vote that when nothing was criticized? I haven't heard of a lot of them either, so...I'm sorry? I got some blowback from the Banshee thing but the thing that people have to remember that some of us aren't American and a lot of these programs just don't air in our countries.

  • Leigh

    Until the last four pics, I had no idea who any of them were, either.

  • trixiestreats

    Yeah, I had no idea who Maggie Lawson and James Roday were. Then I googled her, thought I figured it out based on an image ("Oh, she played in the tv version of Clueless!"). And then I realized I had her confused with Rachel Blanchard. And now I still don't know who she is. (I've never watched Psych.)

    This list is SO good. Paul Scheer and June Diane Raphael are my favorites.

  • KC

    Hah, I looked at your post and thought "WTF are they talking about. Maggie Lawson DID play in the TV version of Clueless" and then I looked it up. Maggie Lawson has been in a bunch of stuff, she's just one of those actors you see around.

    I love Paul Scheer & June Diane Raphael, do you listen to "How Did This Get Made?". Such a funny podcast, Jason Mantzoukas is hilarious too.

  • bastich

    It doesn't matter, because they know who YOU are....and they're coming for you....

    (cue dramatic music)

  • BWeaves

    BWA-HAHAHHAHA! Too bad it's not true.

    And who the hell downvoted me? I'm just being honest. I really don't know who most of these people are.

  • bastich

    It's them! They're downvoting you from inside the house! Run!!!

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    You're on a roll!

  • emmalita

    I know who all of these people are, and now I feel like I'm not doing enough with my life.

  • JenVegas

    Maggie Lawson and James Roday are a for-real couple? I had no idea.

  • Teresa

    I didn't either, and love the show. Somehow missed that one

  • michaelceratops

    My hair dresser does June Raphael's hair so I mean... I can work on making this happen.

  • Mrs. Julien

    It's really just Amy Poehler though, right? Because I'm quite certain that earlier versions of this list include her and Will Arnett.

  • Jack Read

    What? People don't like Nick Kroll?

    What is going on

  • PerpetualIntern

    I think it's less about liking or not liking Nick Kroll, and more that we'd want to be best friends forever with Amy, with or without a significant other. Because she's awesome.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Rando side note: I would go bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S, for a sequel to The Station Agent, the adventures of Fin and Joe.

    *Le Sigh*

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Ooooh, my takeaway is that I love Portia's dress.

  • Tinkerville

    Emily Blunt and John Krasinski! They're adorable and hilarious and I want to get drunk with them very, very badly.

  • Bell Swerve

    They're pregnant :)

  • Michelle

    Yes! I want to do karaoke with them.

  • chanohack

    Ellen throws the BEST parties. I'm sure of it.

  • I have mixed feelings on the Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale relationship. They seem great but it wasn't that long ago that I thought that Sutton Foster and Bobby Cannavale seemed like a great couple.

  • mairimba

    Bobby and Sutton have been separated for like 6 years. No?

  • mrsdalgliesh

    Sutton certainly seemed smitten. I remember her Tonys speech in which I think she talked about Bobby and his son as though they were already a family. Wikipedia says she's now engaged to someone else.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oooooh, an unnamed fiance. And @mairimba, no, not separate for 6 years - she's only been divorced from Christian Borle (of Smash) for around 3 years.

  • Buellie413

    Aw, I love the Casey Wilson news!

  • Parker

    How are Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard not on this list??

    Sloth party!

  • BuffyloGal

    They're new parents. New parents are never fun. They'll be on next year's list.

  • chanohack

    I've wished more than once to be their next-door neighbors!

  • Gord Reid

    Mind the sloth poop.
